Medical: Custom Fabricated Medical Equipment Mobile Cart
The Medical Equipment industry is one of the most demanding when it comes to product quality, surface finishes and user interface. Metal enclosures provide the shell and the frame to support the integration of electronics and other highly sensitive devices.
In order to ensure sustained functionality of such apparatus, the equipment manufacturers in this industry need reliable and sophisticated suppliers of components. Additional to technological capability – which is considered a must - the degree of process control is the distinctive element that separates good performers from the average players. It is precisely these criteria that motivated a reputable OEM of medical devices to transfer the manufacturing and mechanical assembling of multiple generations of mobile carts to Nelson Industrial.
Soon after the first order was completed and the processes validated, our Technical Department engaged in a product redesign exercise – in direct collaboration with the design and marketing groups of the customer. The aim was Value Engineering and Process Optimization. What resulted after a three month effort, was a superior product – improved esthetics and functionality, while easier to manufacture and assemble – providing, in the mean time, a standard platform for multiple variants.
Currently at its third generation, with the original OEM having been acquired by a larger corporation, this product family continues to represent an important component of our “Medical” portfolio. To date, hundreds of such carts have been produced in quarterly batches, and delivered to the final integrator in packages going straight to their assembly line. Our internal systems ensure perfect quality, 100% of the time.
